Now, I think most of us have heard of Birdsnest and have purchased from them before, I know I have. They stock a lot of my favourite brands and, with all of them in the one place, it makes purchasing very easy.
But I have to say the Birdsnest exclusive brand Boho Bird hadn’t really been on my radar until now. If you follow me on instagram you will know that I have a real weakness for the Boho style. I find it fits perfectly with my busy lifestyle and I love the less structured relaxed look.
So when the lovely Birds at Birdsnest sent me the A/W catalogue The Cowgirl In Me I immediately fell in love.
The new collection is full of flowing tops, kimonos/wraps, long jackets, cosy knits, denim and leather pieces.
There is something for everyone in this new collection – even if you don’t want to fully embrace the boho trend, a top, or a skirt, or a piece of denim is always a great addition to any autumn/winter collection.
I could have added the whole collection to my wardrobe quite easily but chose two items to feature – the Trail Blazing Longline Duster in sky blue and the Flying Free Top in white both versatile pieces that I will be able to work into my existing wardrobe.
Flying Free Top in white $79.95 * | Rockmans Biker Jeggings blue wash $49.95 * | Planet Shoes Woodstock2 in taupe $299.00 * – I will be writing a post on these and a couple of other fabulous boots in the near future | Adorne clutch purchased on sale | Statement necklace purchased from local market.
I always love a white shirt – clean, fresh and perfect with denim jeans.
This shirt, with its long flowing sides, has a real touch of whimsy and romance about it. It’s the perfect palette for a statement necklace, or to layer under your favourite jacket or vest.
I worn it two ways:
- Above with a short statement necklace and a pair of brown knee high flat boots from Planet Shoes – a easy comfortable outfit perfect for just about any occasion.
- Below with a long necklace and a pair of killer heels – a couple of accessories changes and you’re ready for a day or night out.
Flying Free Top in white $79.95 * | Rockmans Biker Jeggings blue wash $49.95 * | Witchery Raquel Booties $199.95 | Adorne clutch purchased on sale | Sister in Style Long Pendant $40.00 (same style but different colour pendant)
I love a long line coat, but don’t love the heavy weight of the ones usually available. Queensland is not known for its really cold weather so this duster, made from natural fibers, will be perfect addition to my autumn/winter wardrobe.
As it is slightly over-sized, for those in the cooler climates it will be a fabulous item to add to knitted layers.
I’ve added it to all white and a pair of heels but it would work equally as well with denim jeans and your favourite pair of boots.
The other big difference is the colour a gorgeous sky blue – such a refreshing change from the usual dark colours of typical winter clothes.
